The HP NC365T 4-port Ethernet Server Adapter is a four lane (x4) PCI Express (PCIe) high performing single-chip, low-power quad port adapter that offers the highest port density among all ProLiant Networking Options.
The NC365T is PCIe Gen 2.0 compliant adapter that supports TCP checksum and segmentation, Large Send and Receive offload capability, Message Signal Interrupt Extension (MSI-X), IEEE 1588, Receive Side Scaling (RSS), VLAN tagging, 9.5KB jumbo frames and IPv6. The NC365T ships with support for an advanced server virtualization feature called Virtual Machine Data queue (VMDq), which improves I/O performance by reducing I/O overhead in a virtualized environment. Like all ProLiant Networking Options, NC365T can be easily installed in either standard or low profile slots
With a theoretical throughput of 10 Gbps each direction, the x4 PCI Express bus is more than capable of supporting the NC365T's four gigabit ports. Up to 1000 Mbps Ethernet transfer rate per port (4000 Mbps combined) delivers outstanding network performance designed to improve response time and remove bottlenecks across the entire network. Four ports on a single adapter are ideal for high density, I/O slot constrained servers, virtualization and security, applications, server consolidation, and increased network segmentation. The total aggregate throughput of 4Gbps also meets the needs for customers desiring high bandwidth but are not yet ready to move to 10 Gigabit Ethernet.
Jumbo frames (also known as extended frames) permit a 9.5K byte transmission unit (MTU), which is six times the size of standard 1500 byte Ethernet frame. The NC365T supports jumbo frames as a way to achieve higher throughput and better CPU utilization. Jumbo frames are particularly useful for database transfers and tape backups.
IEEE 802.1Q virtual local area network (VLAN) protocol allows each physical port of the NC365T to be separated into multiple virtual NICs for added network segmentation and enhanced security and performance. VLANs increase security by isolating traffic between users. Limiting the broadcast traffic to within the same VLAN domain also improves performance. IEEE quality of service (QoS) 802.1p tagging allows the adapter to mark or tag frames with a priority level across a QoS-aware network for improved traffic flow.
For overall improved system response, the NC365T supports standard TCP/IP offloading techniques including: TCP/IP checksum offload (TCO) moves the TCP and IP checksum offloading from the CPU to the network adapter. Large send offload (LSO) or TCP segmentation offload (TSO) allows the TCP segmentation to be handled by the adapter rather than the CPU.
VMDq helps to improve network I/O throughput by offloading the sorting burden from the VMM (Virtual Machine Manager) to the network controller. It helps meet the demands of consolidated virtual workloads by helping the Server meet demands of multiple Virtual Machines.
MSI/MSI-X support provides performance optimization benefits for multi-core environments by load balancing of interrupt handling between different CPUs/cores
This protocol helps time-stamping and synchronization of time sensitive applications.
In addition to Gigabit Ethernet, the NC365T adapter supports both 10Mbps and 100Mbps providing compatibility with Ethernet and Fast Ethernet twisted pair networks.
The NC365T is a low-profile card supporting both full height and half height PCI Express slots. A full height bracket is pre-installed on the card with the half height bracket in the box. The quick install card includes instructions on how to change brackets if needed.
The x4 PCI Express interface on the NC365T is compatible with x4, x8, and x16 PCI slots. If installed in a x8 or x16 slot, the adapter will operate at the x4 speed.
ProLiant Network Adapter Teaming provides fault tolerance and load balancing across a team of two or more network adapters. The team of adapters works together as a single virtual adapter. Support for several different types of teaming is included.
The NC365T automatically senses the speed of the device to which it is attached. It also automatically configures for half or full duplex, depending on the duplex mode of the switch, hub, or router connected to the adapter.
Support for pre-boot execution environment (PXE) enables automatic deployment of computing resources remotely from anywhere. It allows a new or existing server to boot over the network and download software, including the operating system, from a management/ deployment server at another location on the network. Additionally, PXE enables decentralized software distribution and remote troubleshooting and repairs.
